While student teaching 5th grade in Riverton, KS, I was lucky enough to meet my husband (Nick), and we have now been married for almost 19 years. We have been blessed with three daughters. Our oldest (Leia) is now starting 7th grade this year while our youngest (Isabelle) is entering preschool. Our middle daughter (Piper) is so excited to be a big 1st grader this year. Since I live in Uniontown, KS and not in Iola, our children go to school in Fort Scott. Though they do come and help me set up my classroom each year.
